On Monday, May 25, Woodbine Entertainment announced new dates for several Standardbred stakes to be held this season at Woodbine Mohawk Park.

The stakes rescheduling only impacts events that were originally slated for May or June. All other races remain the same on the 2020 stakes calendar.

As previously announced, the $1 million Pepsi North America Cup for three-year-old pacers has been rescheduled to Saturday, August 29.

The Fan Hanover (Three-Year-Old Filly Pace), Roses Are Red (Mare Pace) and Armbro Flight (Mare Trot) have all been rescheduled to join the Pepsi North America Cup on Saturday, August 29.

Eliminations (if necessary) for all four events will take place on Saturday, August 22.

The Goodtimes for three-year-old trotting colts has been rescheduled to Saturday, September 5. Eliminations (if necessary) will be held on Friday, August 28.

The Somebeachsomewhere for three-year-old pacers has been rescheduled for Saturday, September 12.

The final event to be rescheduled is the SBOA Stakes for Ontario sired three-year-old fillies. The SBOA will now take place on Saturday, November 14 with eliminations (if necessary) scheduled for Saturday, November 7.

Woodbine Mohawk Park will no longer play host to a leg of The Meadowlands administrated Miss Versatility Series (originally scheduled May 29) or Graduate Series (originally scheduled June 6) in 2020.

The Meadowlands has confirmed with Woodbine their intentions to reschedule the Mohawk leg of the Miss Versatility for later this season at the New Jersey track, while the Graduate Series leg has been cancelled due to scheduling constraints.

Live harness racing, without spectators, is scheduled to resume on Friday, June 5 at Woodbine Mohawk Park.


May 29, 2020 - 2:35 pmIf the Mohawk Gold Cup hasn't

Mike Mobley SAID...

If the Mohawk Gold Cup hasn't been cancelled, it could very logically be rescheduled for Aug 29, as part of the NAC undercard, and serve as a prep for The Canadian Pacing Derby on Sept. 5. I think this is the first time in its history that The Canadian Pacing Derby has been run as a single dash, without eliminations or preliminary legs.

May 25, 2020 - 9:20 pmThere's one other stakes race

Mike Mobley SAID...

There's one other stakes race originally scheduled for NAC night which I'd like to know the status of: Has The Mohawk Gold Cup been cancelled, postponed, or will it still be held as scheduled on June 20?.
